Atrium

The studio acts as general designer and has the capacity to create complex projects, from urban design to designing interiors, including individual finishing elements. The company also provides landscape architecture. It is structured as a design studio; the leadership oversees each project with input from various specialists.

The studio was founded in 1994 by Anton Nadtochiy and Vera Butko. Before 2000, it was a leading designer for interiors, including public buildings. Later, Atrium began working on the urban scale.
Atrium is one of Russia’s few leaders on the cutting edge of eco-architecture. The studio developed Barkli Park, a residential project with the Center for Innovative Sport Technology currently nearing completion, to meet LEED certification requirements. Architects has been working with green roofs and vertical gardens for many years. The company has also developed this interest with installations at various land-art festivals.
The studio’s leaders frequently comment on contemporary issues in architecture and urban development for the media and are also invited to lecture in various cities and international forums.
Atrium has developed relationships with domestic and foreign engineering companies. We have had productive collaboration with WERNER SOBEK Engineering & Design, a German engineering company that, much like our studio, focuses on outstanding high-tech projects. There are few projects with Drees&Sommer, yoo design (Philipp Stark creative director), which were directed by “Atrium”. There is significant experience of working in international consortsium with MVRDV, Anouk-Landscape Architect and Arcadis - Engineers creating contest project for new park in Zaryadye (closest site to the Red Square).
